Nothing could have prepared me for the death of my mother. The moment she took her last breath it felt like time stood still. I have encased my mother’s ashes in a hand blown hourglass which refuses to run. Afterlife exposes the physical remains of being. Symbolising the hour of our passing. Her spiritual journey continues.

In loving memory of my mother, Mara Cavaliere
1 May 1952 – 8 December 2008
